Moe, 10-6 might be a bit high.

I'm hoping to beat Detroit and go 4-4 after the break. 9-7 should be enough in the NFC this year.

We need to beat Dallas without Romo (Romo won't be playing... even if he is ready, they won't bring him back in a lost season), the Giants at least once, and 2 other games.

Still waiting for Pampa....

i would love it if people started tackling marion barber by grabbing his hair.

Posted by: walter-in-fallschurch | October 26, 2010 8:58 AM |

Walter, I am sure you know this but that would be totally legal. Braids, pony tails or if you're in Baltimore - rat tails - are all considered "part of the uniform" if they are outside the helmet and can be used to take someone down.

What a dirty trick it would be if a player had extensions and a would-be tackler grabbed a handful of hair/braids and they just pulled out.

I think that's why the majority of long-haired players are on defense.

That was great I love that guy.

As Nelson Muntz would say…..HA-HA!...to all of the cowboys fans. Marion Barber….overrated. And what’s up with that tiny little facemask that’s too close to his face? That was nice. Ginas look tough though. Not really thrilled with that. Ellie is really learning how to read blitzes, which could mean trouble for our defense. But that’s a ways away. Need to focus on what could be a tough Lions team. Hopefully some will see it as a potential revenge game.


Also love how we’ve already got folks calling other folks “Haynesworth slurpers” already……funny stuff. Before the bears game we all said that he had a great game against Philly. That’s two games in a row (that he’s played in) that he has played well. Look for more and more out of him. Love it.

This is how I see it shaking out:

@DET-L

We lose to the Lions because the cardiac kids can't let us relax on the bye week.

Bye

PHI-W

Shanahan comes out with some serious shanhananigans because he has the extra week od preperation. He invents a new tactic that allows us to win but is reviled by everyone else and the NFL makes a rule against it next year.

@TEN-L

We get beat up like the supporting actress in a lifetime movie.

MIN-W

Close game but we end up winning it when Tavaris Jackson throws an INT late in the 4th.

@NYG-L

Sheli and the Ginas take us to the woodshed here. I'd say 400 yards of offense and 4 TDs through the air then the aforementioned tactic Shanahan invented during the bye week is used against us and we lose because of it.

TB-W

We run all over them and win a very boring low scoring game.

@DAL-W

I say we roll over them because by this point in the season they have given up.

@JAC-L

Close tough game but in the end we just couldn't stop MJD.

NYG-W

We win here because even in the new stadium the wind is too much for Sheli's little girl arm.

I got this:

Bears' Recap: They suck

Lions preview: They suck, too, only in a better stadium.

Let's get a "W" and chill the next weekend.

Philly, Minn, and Tenn will be very, very, very important games.

That's a 2-1 stretch of things go right.

PAskinsfan, that last Giants game is here, not in NY. Just sayin'...

Agreed on all counts except the Jax game...that team is awful and they'll need more than MJD to pull that one off.

Here's a quote from Raheem Morris that I think some up here should bear in mind when they jump on McNabb for "being JC-esque":

"Stats are for losers, so you keep looking at stats and we'll keep looking at wins."

100% co-sign.

The way things are shaping up...that last game against the Giants could be very meaningful. This could be a 1st place in NFC East battle...Playoff berth...Or playoff exemp.

By the way, I think we shape up well against the Lions. The O Line from Casey to the Jammal needs to play well, cause Suh and Vanden Bosh is comin. They also have two tight ends, and Jahvid Best. Not to mention Calvin Johnson. Those chances we keep getting to separate from teams has to be taken advantage of. We have to score on them, and not keep it close. Or they will and can, make a comeback. If we can hold up Suh and co, there secondary can be picked apart. We just can't let Calvin Johnson have a day. So D Hall needs to have a big encore.

LOL...looks like Dallas is still delusional. You just can't make this stuff up:

Roy Williams: Jon Kitna is just as good as Tony Romo
Posted by Michael David Smith on October 26, 2010 9:40 AM ET
Cowboys receiver Roy Williams had his best season in 2006, when he caught 82 passes for 1,310 yards and made his only Pro Bowl.

His quarterback that year? Jon Kitna.

So Williams may be the only person in Dallas who thinks it's just fine that Kitna will take Romo's place as the Cowboys' quarterback after Romo suffered a clavicle fracture on Monday night.

"Tony is our starter, but Jon is just as good,'' Williams said after the loss to the Giants. "We are going to work this week in practice so we can get the timing down with the receivers. But I have complete faith in him. I have played with him for three years and I know how good he is.''

Kitna threw some ugly passes when he first came on in place of Romo, although late in the game Kitna began to find open receivers downfield. Williams says the Cowboys' receivers can expect Kitna to find them regularly.

"He will put the ball where it needs to be,'' Williams said. "Is he going to be perfect? Of course not. There isn't a quarterback in this league that is perfect. He is going to make mistakes but we have to help him.''

Williams and Kitna helped each other quite a bit in 2006, but the Lions' record that year was still 3-13. The Cowboys are on pace for the same record this year.

I think if big Al can have a big day that will limit their passing game. Stafford doesn't do well when he's got linemen in his face. The thing that worries me is if we start blitzing and they start dumping off to Pettigrew and Best.

With the Cowpies squarely on the bottom-feeder heap, does Wade Phillips get a mulligan now from JJ due to TRomo's injury last night?

I expected heads to roll if the Pies looked bad last night, but now I'm wondering if there's any chage with the injury.

Scamp, I think that after the jints scored 31 unanswered points they went into prevent mode which gave the turds a chance to make it look like they made a game of it.

My thinking is that the jints would have put up at least 200 more yards and 21 more points on the turds last night if they did not shut it down.

Analysts cannot figure out the NFC East this year. They're just chasing the skirt of the current leader. I think the Ginas offense is coming together nicely, but that defense is just an injury away from the wheels coming off.

This quote from Randy Galloway today in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram takes the cake.

The Dallas soap opera should continue for the rest of the season. Jones can't fire Phillips and replace him with Garrett, now that he's seen what a disaster he is as an OC. He'll have to let Wade finish the season.

How great it will be to watch them lose game after game in Jerry's new billion dollar ego trip.

Wade IS Norv! There's no difference!

Looks like the Cowpies fanbase is holding Jerry accountable like we did with lil Danny. He's going to be pressured to make a move if they stop going to games, just like Danny--which they will, since the Pies are pretty much out of playoff contention.

Maybe even an in-season firing. Turmoil--cool!

Which is why he's the logical choice.

Jerry just wants a puppet. Norv is that guy. Plus they already run Norv's offense so they'll view that as a seamless transition.

If JJ was capable of clarity of thought, he'd know HE'S the problem there. I hope he never wakes up...

from the Bog:

Just continue to catch passes," Rogers said. "I did the Jugs machine, and I'm really not a Jugs machine guy, because the ball, it comes in one position. And you can continue to catch all day Jugs machine, Jugs machine. I do drills that continue to get me moving, when I'm in my backpedal, breaking right, left, whether I got my back turned and I've got a cornerback telling me when to turn around and I'm just catching that flash, working with Donovan, working with Beck. I'll continue to work, just stuff that people don't see."


"I've been hearing the talk about my hands since, what, '05, '06?" he told CSN. "It don't bother me. That's for other people. Like I tell people, when you continue to say that, it's kind of wasting your time talking to me, 'cause my whole thing is to make sure I'm locking that man down, not getting passes on me. But D. Hall, he's a playmaker. Once that ball get around him, he's gonna make plays."

Rocco,

That was a scream. The best line is "We're not coming back from this, people!" Let's hope Shango is right. I just don't see JJ ever stepping into the background like Snyder finally did.

Never thought I'd say this about a Blowboy fan, but I kind of like Shango.

Looks like DeSean might be back for our Monday night tilt in a couple weeks:

DeSean Jackson passes concussion test
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 26, 2010 10:11 AM ET
When DeSean Jackson first was injured nine days ago, it was described as a "severe concussion" that could keep him out for several weeks.

With a well timed bye included in the mix, it now looks more likely Jackson will only miss one game. Eagles coach Andy Reid said on his radio show Monday night that Jackson has already passed his concussion test.

That doesn't mean Jackson is a certainty to play; the Eagles have to follow the league's protocol with concussions. But Reid said there was a "pretty good chance" Jackson will suit up in Philly's next game against the Colts on November 7, along with defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley and tackle Jason Peters.

I watched the Eagles-Titans Sunday and Philadelphia looked like the better team for three quarters. Their offense couldn't take advantage of an excellent defensive effort. Philly has improved as the year has season has progressed, which is typical for an Andy Reid squad.

If ESPN and Fox had it their way, the Redskins could win the NFC East at 10-6 and a 6-10 cowboys would get the Redskins playoff spot.
